Description

This lesson introduces students to the branches of government and gets them thinking about the roles each plays in our society.

During the lesson, students complete an activity in which they are assigned roles and must elect others to positions while providing sound justification for their decisions. This is a great way for students to learn about the importance of each branch and how they work together to govern our country. Students are also asked to tell which branch given statements is a part of, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson material.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify the three branches of the U.S. government and list some of the responsibilities of each. They’ll have a better understanding of how our government works and how it impacts their everyday lives.

I am starting my first

I am starting my first year of teaching and I am feeling overwhelmed by all the different curriculum. When I stumbled onto Clarendon Learning I felt a wave of relief. I now had a base to work from in creating lesson plans to fit my needs. I haven't taught any of the lessons, yet, but I know that I now have some tools in my pocket that I will be able to use. Thank you for having these lesson plans available.

Love it all!!

I've downloaded and used several of these lesson plans, and they are awesome! Total package, plug-and-play, just the thing when I'm just behind and struggling to find the time to create something of my own. I wish I had found this a couple of years ago.
